Papercut Patterns was founded by Katie Romagnoli in 2010, when she noticed a gap in the sewing market for modern patterns with inspirational styling. Katie is trained in both fashion and graphic design and uses these skills to create patterns that are equally beautiful and functional.

Since those early days, Papercut Patterns has expanded into a spacious studio with a dynamic team. Along with Katie, who continues to design and manage the business, we have:

Paula, our packer and dispatcher. She takes your orders and turns them into beautiful parcels for your postie.


Katrina is our marketing and blogger extraordinaire. She answers your emails and writes blog posts while hunting for fresh growth opportunities.

All of us share a passion for sewing and together we laugh, dream and gush over new fabric. We also love our food, often curious to see what Paula has whipped up for lunch (her dumplings are amazing!).

Here at Papercut Patterns, we have a strong focus on design and sustainability. We love our planet and aim to use 100% recycled and recyclable products where possible. We also love our NZ made fabrics with a certain weak spot for NZ merino. It's divine in winter!

We love seeing all your creations and even more, love to see you enjoying them. So keep sharing, tagging us in Instagram or whatever platform you use, and don't be afraid to get in touch x
